Remote Control Repository

From Marantz123's original post:

Fellows

There are probably a few hundred stray hand-held remote controls lying around in garages, draws and in boxes amongst our forumites. These RCs lay forgotten, eventually unknown, and end up becoming more ...remote...seen occasionally on a clean-up day or during a search for something else...and the cycle continues.

This may result in equipment being moved on without their RCs, and the subsequent hunt for a replacement RC.

Would it be beneficial to have a special place for stray RCs to exist..a virtual location on this forum where we place a comment which contains the brand/model of the RC and if known,  the item that it controls ?

This would not be a "for-sale" section, and certainly not a place for a "wanted"  RC advert.  An item will be mentioned without any pricing..simply a virtual repository where stray RCs are recorded as you come across them in your stash. Following this, a forumite in search of an RC would perform a global search and hopefully their search criteria matches something in the RC section. The forumite then contacts the holder of the remote control to discuss availability, pricing/shipping which is handled via PM.

===

SO... post away and should you require that missing remote control, post an ad in the Classifieds "Wanted" section.

Wonderful !!!   :)

Welcome to a place of transcendent state for remote controls. A place where they experience neither suffering, nor a sense of self or worldly desire (except the dire need and "soul" purpose to control something specific). A place where remote controls are released from the cycle of death (when we lose them) and temporary rebirth (when we find them and forget them again).

This place represents our goal to give each and every remote control a million chances for Man, Woman, Child and pet to push or chew on their buttons again, an opportunity to live and regain control.


P.S : Batteries not included.

At both the Muizenberg and Milnerton street markets, there are traders with literally hundreds of remotes looking for good homes. 
Most look completely stuffed
A friend has an elderly CD player that he has become attached to, but the remote stopped working
I opened it up, washed the rubber buttons in warm water, being careful with the carbon dots underneath and wiped the circuit board with methylated spirits.  It was very dirty, having laid about for 20 years
Thereafter it was good as new
The difficult part is opening the case with a plastic tool

Music is the shorthand of emotion
